Chef Jenn's Tips

  • Use fresh cauliflower and make your own cauliflower rice to make this easy dish more economical
  • It's all about the taco seasoning! Make sure you use a good brand or make your own like this Fiesta Taco Seasoning
  • Add some chopped cilantro or sliced green onions at the end just to add a pop of color and more flavor
  • A squeeze of lime will also add to this dish, but it isn't necessary
